A brief description of how sustainability is included prominently in new student orientation:
First-year students participate in a three-week term (August-term) to help prepare them for upcoming the academic year and orient them to campus life and the local community. August-term includes a series of presentations on important topics, including sustainability, that all students are required to attend. Sustainability-related events (e.g., walks to the farmer's market, a introduction to Lexington's bus system, bike trips to a local park) and community service projects are included as optional activities. Additionally, many faculty integrate sustainability into the first-year seminar they teach during August-term.
